I’m a big user of Collections in Lightroom. But every once in a while, I’m in a collection and I need to get back to the original folder that a photo came from. If the collection just has photos from one folder, than it’s usually not so hard for me to find it. But sometimes I have collections with photos from multiple folders and I forget where their original “home” is. Well, Lightroom has a way to find it. Just right-click on your photo (btw… if you don’t have a right click mouse, it’s time to join the year 1998 and get one 😉 ). Anyway… just right-click on your photo and choose Go To Folder In Library. Lightroom will automatically bring you out of the collection, and in to that original source folder in the Library module.
